COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, dark and delicious porter with chocolate and coffee overtones accented by a subtle smokiness from just the right amount of peat smoked malt. Unlike a rauchbier, the "smoke" in Stone Smoked Porter is an ELEMENT of the character rather than being THE character. -- Greg Koch, Stone Brewing Co.

"Tastes like black" is usually what I tell my friends who ask about it. Pour is viscous with little head, scent and taste are very dark. The coffee, chocolate, and smoke blend together well without any part dominating. Delicious even in a bottle.

Overhopped, bitter, somewhat rancid. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle, because I cannot fathom how this beer is enjoying such a high overall rating on Ratebeer. Yuck. Almost a pour-out. Tastes like someone dropped a cigarette butt in a bottle of Big Rock Traditional Ale.

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. This had a pretty mild smoked element to it & was pretty well balanced with the chocolate & Mike bitterness. Pretty nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, finally getting a chance at this. We get most of the flavored varieties here, but never the plain?! Anyway, deep brown beer, decent almond colored head, good lacing. Aroma dried plum, coffe, smoke, toasted barley. Taste is toasted barley, faint fruit, coffee. Palate a bit light, carbonation a bit sharp, for style. I like the hops at the finish, this is almost dry.

Incredible deal and wonderful aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate. Good and quite as heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Exquisite beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

RumRunner101 (845) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Dark pour with tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, spruce. Well balanced between smoke, roasted malts, and a sprucey bitter finish. Good.

Zymurgeist2 (1197) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 17, 2015
From bottle to tulip. Aroma of restrained chocolate and coffee. Moderate cedar. Pours brown with ruby highlights. Light brown head sustains around the outside with large bubbles. Very limited lacing. Taste is moderate high peaty, which predominates over the other flavors. Moderate low biscuit, and slight semi-sweet chocolate. Moderate high bitterness.

Couleur brune foncés translucide avec un col beige moyennement résistant. Aromes de caramel, café, chocolat, un petit coté fumé. Rien d’extraordinaire pour moi...
